About 3.5 weeks ago, I wrote on here about my hen that had her hip dislocated (I think) from my rooster mating with her. She has been slowly healing by herself, with "chicken physical therapy" and lots of healthy food from me. I've also had her out in the yard, adjacent to the chicken run during the day, only putting her in her crate at night. Her legs seem to be almost back to normal. She can walk and run, just not as limber as before. But, her appetite and energy are superb. I think she would be ready to go back out with the flock, but I'm not sure the best way to do it. She doesn't have the best grab reflex in her toes, so i don't know if just placing her on the roost at night will be in her best interest. I did try to place her in the yard during the day, and a few of the hens gave her a problem, and she's not quick enough to flee yet. I just don't want to rush it and have her get re-injured. I should mention, I no longer have the rooster. Also, as a side note... she's been recovering in a medium sized dog crate (36'). I had a second chicken (one of my polish) hit by a car yesterday, who needed to be isolated as well. So, I put my Barred Rock hen in a larger dog crate, figuring she's bigger and would appreciate the extra room. When I put her in it tonight, she seems unsettled and ticked off. Should I move her back to the smaller, familiar one? Chickens are so funny... and I thought they'd be easy keepers! Thanks in advance for any advice.
